Spay Arkansas Giving Tuesday Mission 2019

Spay Arkansas Giving Tuesday Mission 2019

 

Our mission at Spay Arkansas is to alleviate the suffering for homeless pets, to end shelter overcrowding and euthanasia by providing access to low cost spay and neuter services for all. Over the course of the past 7 years we have made a lot of progress in Northwest Arkansas. We have fixed over 35,000 animals and have increased access for low-income residents to fix their pets at a nominal cost.

Mission 2019: Increase Outreach

Many areas within our state are sorely lacking in access to any veterinary care. In these areas high volume low cost spay and neuter is virtually non-existent. Many areas have no animal control workers and very few animal welfare organizations. We can help!

North Central Arkansas

The 4-county area of Stone, Searcy, Baxter and Izard counties have a total population of 75,516 covering 2,439 square miles. Despite the size there are only 2 shelters and one rescue group in the area. Animal control is only available in 1 community and 1 county.

One rescue group took in over 300 animals last year. Due to the numbers, many were transported out of state to other no kill organizations. Because access to spay and neuter services is limited, too many litters of puppies and kittens continue to be born.

In 2019 we will be focusing our mission and outreach efforts in this region. Our expertise and experienced staff, coupled with eager students from Kansas State School of Veterinary Medicine leads us to project that we can fix 300 animals over the course of a 3-day mash style clinic. We will hold these clinics at the Stone County Fairgrounds in Mountain View, AR.
